Ibrahim Barghout took over office 18 months ago, and currently oversees the operations of eight regional properties in the UAE, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
Focusing on the expansion of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company in the Middle East, Barghout has introduced a number of measures to improve operational efficiency.
“I saw the opportunity to realign regional operational resources at an above-property level, so that new property teams are ready for pre-openings,” comments Barghout.
“I credit every ounce of my success to my wife. My career would be a struggle had she not supported me throughout my years of hectic schedules and travel itineraries”
